  • Montana Retreat

    "We arrived to a beautiful home after a long drive. The Home "Mom's Place" immediately impressed us. The home was immaculate, well furnished and stocked with all the essentials. The most impressive part of Mom's Place is simply Idyllic. Located close enough to shopping and restaurants, but gives you complete privacy. We especially enjoyed fly fishing in the back yard, waking up to a Moose looking into our bedroom window, and having a Cow-Calf pair (elk) roaming through the area nightly. Never had an issues; everything was well explained prior to our arrival. I can not thank Paige and her family enough for sharing their home. Looking at dates for next summer!! Kurt, Wisconsin"

  • Excellent stay!

    "Over all, outstanding stay and we could not have asked for more! Group of four Military rented the Kiphart's cabin after our deployment for some much needed R&R and it was exactly what we needed. The Kiphart's were extremely accommodating and we had excellent communication with them. They were even nice enough to leave us a nice gift in the refrigerator (THANK YOU!). The hot tub was certainly used for evening star gazing as the views are truly amazing. During the day we ventured out in the local towns where we enjoyed horseback riding, fly fishing, shooting etc. The locals were extremely nice and helpful. About the house: The beds were comfy and plenty of towels were provided. We never turned on the TV but we certainly used the whole house music system daily and it was awesome. The fire place was perfect to take the chill out the air in the evenings and it does a good job keeping the cabin warm. Downstairs always seemed to be cold but plenty of blankets were available. We enjoyed the drive up to the cabin every time as we saw lots of deer and other wildlife every time! We had a 4x4 pick em up truck, so the drive up was not an issue although it certainly is not required unless snow is on the ground. Overall, outstanding stay and we are very grateful to see and experience God's beautiful creation with such a great group of friends."

  • Look no further for the perfect vacation/fly-fishing destination!

    "We spent four days here in May to attend graduation and immediately knew we had to come back! We have stayed in VRBO rentals in Hawaii, Alaska, Arizona, Oregon, Nevada, the San Juan Islands and elsewhere, this ranks as the best to date!! The house is IMMACULATE as are the grounds, and set far enough off the highway for no road noise. Everything is well maintained and in good working order, the kitchen is well stocked and needs nothing. As for the fishing, we didn't need to leave the property once! There are so many spots to fish on what seems like miles of easily accessed river (Bitterroot)... The only tough decision was which spot to fish and when. The big front porch was a nightly hit, sitting with a glass of wine and watching the lightening over the mountains! Grocery shopping/Sporting goods are close by in Hamilton or an easy drive to Missoula. More than one evening I was joined on the river by a family of white tail deer. My only regret was deciding to fly and leaving my bicycle at home. I could go on and on, but until you visit words are just not enough! The fishing was so good I'll need Physical Therapy to rehab the tendonitis in my elbow..... Thank you Thomas and Marilyn for making this wonderful retreat available!"

  • Spacious ranch house

    "We rented the entire house and plenty of space. Two window units in the upstairs section and fans in the lower section. Very spacious with plenty of sheets and towels, water pressure was low but it could be the cost effective shower head that makes it seem extra slow of course you want to ensure there is enough hot water for large groups during the winter times. There is plenty of closed space in each room. Wish we had better access to the river but still enjoyed throwing rocks into the water. Outside patio was a nice addition to sit and relax at with a swinging bench to enjoy. Two TVs upstairs and one in the downstairs with direct tv access on everyone. Older house and great for outdoors adventures, there is an elk head mounted in the sitting area between levels. You can get a good workout if you keep going up and down between levels. Remember this is a ranch house and you may get some bugs. We did get to see a turkey a few times and three white tailed deers wondered up to the barn area...a nice treat for the kids. Grocery store and gas stations close by. Missoula is 15 minutes away if you need more options in stores and dining. Overall it took some getting use to since we had so much space to allow the kids to get lost. My 4 year old loved having his own house....one level was basically his to enjoy on his own. Our group consisted of 4 adults and 5 kids ranging from 4-13 years old. We chose this location for its space to relax and take a few days off together."
